Nancy (Sienkiewicz) Nelson passed away on Oct. 10, 2019 at the age of 61.
Nancy lived the life she wanted to live. She grew up in Darien. She was a skilled bookkeeper at several large corporations in California and New York, and finally at Microspec in New Hampshire. She was a very dedicated employee, highly respected by her colleagues.
When she and her ex-husband Dan moved to Jaffrey, New Hampshire, she opened the Oribe Shop selling local garden plants and gifts. They then built a beautiful reclaimed post and beam home on Sand Hill Road in Peterborough. Nancy retired to Wilmington, North Carolina in 2016.
Nancy valued family and friends and was always there to help in times of need. Her brother, Bob, retired to a farmhouse adjacent to her Peterborough, New Hampshire home in 2009, and her brother, Richard, moved there in 2012. Her sisters Karen and Janet and their families frequently stayed at her house for fireworks, holidays or skiing. She was especially close to her niece Kate and helpful to her nephew Stephen.
